Dell Networking N2000 is a series of energy-efficient and cost-effective switches designed for modernizing and scaling network infrastructure. N2000 switches utilize a comprehensive enterprise-class Layer 2+ feature set, deliver consistent, simplified management and offer high-availability device and network design. The N2000 switch series offers a power-efficient Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network-access switching solution with integrated uplinks. The N2000 switch series has high-performance capabilities and wire-speed performance, utilizing a non-blocking architecture to easily handle unexpected traffic loads. The switches offer simple management and scalability via a (full-duplex) high - availability stacking architecture that allows management of up to 12 switches from a single IP address. An integrated power supply and features such as Energy-Efficient Ethernet and short cable detection provide energy efficiency to help decrease power and cooling costs.
Modernize campus network architectures with a power-efficient and resilient switching solution with Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+).. For greater interoperability in multivendor networks, all N-Series switches offer the latest open-standard protocols and include technology to interface with Cisco protocol RPVST+ and devices using CDP. Achieve high availability and full bandwidth utilization with Multi-chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG). All N-Series switches support MLAG to create active/active loop-free redundancy without spanning tree.
Leverage familiar tools and practices
All N-Series switches include Dell Networking OS, designed for easier deployment, greater interoperability and a lower learning curve for network administrators. One common command line interface (CLI) and graphic user interface (GUI) using a well-known command language gets skilled network administrators productive quickly. This allows network administrators to maintain consistent configurations by running one OS release across all N-Series products. With USB auto-configuration, network administrators can rapidly deploy mirrored configurations to numerous devices by simply inserting a USB key.
Deploy with confidence at any scale
N2000 series switches help create performance assurance. Scale easily with built-in rear stacking ports. Switch stacks can be managed from a single screen using the highly-available stacking architecture for high-density aggregation with seamless redundant availability.
